A Deadly Month in the Not-a-War in IraqSunday, May 1, 2011
Eleven deaths in April, but six of those were called “non-hostile incidents.”
Around 45,000 US soldiers still remain stationed in Iraq, and while they are primarily charged with training and equipping their local counterparts, they can return fire in self-defence and still take part in joint counter-terror operations with Iraqi forces.
You see, it’s really not a war anymore. Obama said so.
